Research Day 2020

Sleep Medicine

Tuesday, January 28, 2020
Alma Mater Society Student Nest, Great Hall

The goal of Research Day is to expose our students, faculty and staff to the wide variety of research being carried out in the UBC Faculty of Dentistry. Following last year, through a fresh and more engaging format, we aim to provide more time for the audience to interact with our researchers, including a significant number of student poster presenters.

Research Day 2020 will present talks on the latest research in dental sleep medicine, oral appliances, circadian rhythm and obstructive sleep apnea by a number of specialists, including a physician, dentist and psychologist. What do teeth have to do with a good night’s sleep? Join us to find out at Research Day 2020.
